Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho! It’s Off to Patreon We Go…

As my ideas for St M’s have grown, so have the properties and with another church, a village shop and a manse in varying stages of the embryonic design process; I have been happily dreaming up so many new festivals, feast days, fundraising ideas and fun for St M’s that unless I can find a way to live for another 250 years – most are unlikely to be realised! Remember how I told you about the magazine that changed my life? Well, some years later I was offered a monthly ‘Tee Time’ column and for one glorious year I got to share the triumphs and tears of my 12th scale musings and I was paid for it too! But why am I now on Patreon?

Come On In and Smell the Roses…

As Sunday January 22 was Homeless Sunday here in the UK and having given up the word 'procrastination' as my only New Years' Resolution - I was determined to throw open the doors to St M's Parish Church and having gone to the trouble of creating a feast of tasty goulash in polymer clay for the less fortunate of the parish - I was also determined to put those church mice to work that day. I should add that several of the mice decided not to put in an appearance that day as I could offer nothing stronger than a mug of tea and those who did finally brave the cold to serve up the hot lunch I had prepared and raised awareness and support for those who have no home they can call their own - well, they did me proud! However, as the Mice of the St M's Flower Guild were also nowhere to be seen and with neither the time nor the inclination to teach the basics of floral design to those mice I could see who were scurrying around; I decided to take myself off to find a quiet corner in the midst of all of this frantic activity and arrange the church flowers myself...
